Professor Martin Parker has written an article for The Chartered Association of Business Schools about how the Business School can rescue its tarnished image by teaching alternative forms of organisation.

He suggests: "Perhaps it is time to take the glass atriums down and for these schools to encourage modesty and historical understanding in their graduates. If this means they study how angelic choirs are organised, and the leadership required in running a feminist co-operative, then so much the better. At least the students will understand that there are alternatives, and the School of Organising can become more than just a place for teaching managers."
